Jul 28, 2017
In today’s show, I’m wrapping up my three part series about the 2017 Garden Bloggers Fling held in and around Washington DC. at the end of this past June.
Day 3 was focused on gardens in rural areas outside of DC area, so we will be reviewing wonderful private and public gardens in areas like:
The Plains (Linda Hostetler’s Garden)
Middleburg (a private Estate Garden)
Hamilton (The Garden of Ed and Pat Peters designed by John Magee)
and Vienna (Meadowlark Gardens)
Now, most of these gardens belong to private homeowners with a passion for gardening, while others are the personal gardens created by professional landscape designers (like Linda Hostetler’s Garden). Frankly, it’s always such a treat to see the gardens professional designers create and tend for themselves.
Day 3 also featured stops at the garden of the Chair of the 2017 Fling - Tammy Schmitt’s (SG542) suburban garden, the renowned Merryfield’s Garden Center and the Stone Tower Winery with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
For today’s show, I’ll be joined by fellow garden bloggers:
Teri Speight of Cottage In The Court
Joanne Shaw (SG542) of Down2Earth
Tracy Blevins of Plants Map
